The Queen's State of Atafu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor of the Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 30.314 billion Atafuans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Atafuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,222 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 40,329 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 274,190 per year while the poor average 2,166, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The Governor of the Council has just been declared ruler of Atafu in an international press conference, dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Atafu's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Atafu is ranked 168,557th in the world and 7th in Atafu for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -2.19 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
